Mosques

 

 

karadjozbeg

Karadjoz-bey mosque

 

 

This is considered to be the most beautiful mosque in the region of Herzegovina. With it’s big dome and high minaret it is also the biggest one. It was built by the Turkish architect Kodza Mimar Sinan in 1557. The size of the interior is 13,4x13,4 meters. This one, like all the other mosques in Mostar didn’t get pass the hand of the war. In the second world war it was severely damaged, and in the last Yugoslav-war it was almost completely destroyed. However, today the mosque is rebuilt and ready to proudly once again receive visitors.

Koski Mehmed pasha’s mosque

 

 

Completed in 1618, this mosque is the second biggest in Mostar. It is slightly smaller than Karadjoz-bey mosque but non the less of a similar character. The interior is 12,4x12,4 meters. It is placed just 150 meters north of the Old bridge on the very edge of the river bank. That position gives an unforgettable view over the Old town from the mosque’s minaret. This mosque too was almost destroyed in the recent war but is now rebuilt.
